    Too bad about those Opuses. What's the shelf life of those before they go flat?

    Not sure why I'm asking because I can't find them and even if I did they would get smoked within a few months....:)

    Can't say, Glas'tor. I've had current and aged that all ranged from sublime to blah - and a couple too awful to name at a site intended for real ladies and near gentlemen. I think a year or two takes a little of the sharp edge off and then, if it's gonna be good, it's great. 10-years maybe too much; fresh OTB, maybe too soon.

    I got lucky and fell into a lot of MSRP purchases and over the years so I built up quite a few of the Opus and Anejo in the humidor. Now I'm finishing what I had and not bothering to replace them. After all the mystiqe is said and done the Opus are just to irregular (in flavor) and the Anejos are a tad too strong for me except after eating.

    Padron 4000 natural. I like these sticks a lot. Unassuming and priced right.

    Toraño Master. Crazy good for their price point, and Toraño quality is consistently high from what I've seen. Wood, cocoa, toasty, just really solid and tasty. And $6 for a Churchill, I'll pay that all day for these.

    Took a walk with the memory of my little brother PJ at lunch. Would have been 42 today. Thanks Marker.

    Caved in and had an afternoon cigar.

    The picture doesn't show it well, but this is a beautiful cigar. Little sugary crystals all over the wrapper, just gorgeous. These '09 Cojonu are one of my favorite Tat's, a phenomenal cigar.

    Smoked an Avo No.2 driving back from the vet's office.
    After paying $214 to find out my dog ate something that made her gassy, I figured she deserved an in-truck cigar (with the windows open).

    Last nights smoke.... An Alacranes. Got it in a trade and dont know anything about Alacranes. Seems like a cigar shop in Florida that rolls their own line? Anyway, it was tasty, loads of pepper up front, cedar and brown sugar in the second half.

    This is one that I first smoked back late in the summer that just was not a pleasant smoke. Harsh flavors, uneven burn, overly tight draw and etc.

    Decided to let revisit today after letting them rest for a few more months. I have to say that it was a much improved smoke. Flavors were much more subdued, a hint of sweet cocoa, a bit of leather and just a slight bit of pepper.
    The draw was also much improved. There were still some issues with uneven burn although not nearly as bad. I think this one might need a day or two in the dry box before smoking.

    I am smoking a "___ ____ ____" with Russ. See the Blind Cigar Review whenever he posts.
